Pyramid Head from silent hill 2

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hey guys/girls I am not only new to this forum but I am also relatively new to customizing. I am making a 1/6 scale pyramid head using a Marvel icons Dare Devil as the base and figured I would sculpt the rest using milliput epoxy puddy. I was wondering if anybody had any ideas on how to sculpt the head I.E. do I use a wire frame or cardboard or do I just build up a crap-ton of puddy on his head? I was also wondering what materials to use for his apron, anyway whatever advice youse guys can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

kool beans man, thanks for the advice I don't know why I didn't think to use real fabric.

I'd make the head hollow if I were you, otherwise the weight of a solid head will make posing/standing the figure difficult. When I made a Pyramid Head, many years ago, I used cardboard, but any kind of thin rigid material should work. You can then add any sculpted details you want on top of that.

As your figure is sixth-scale, I'd go with actual fabric for the apron. You could probably repurpose a doll's white dress for that--just cut it down to an apron and smear blood/grime on it. Or, if you know how to sew, make your own, as aprons are pretty simple in form.

It's kind of crappy, but here's the one I made, completely from scratch, around a decade ago (it's about 8 inches high):
